American Halal Co., Stamford, Conn., launched a new line of mini dessert tarts under its Saffron Road brand.
Available at Whole Foods Market nationwide, these bite-size delicacies are inspired by the flavors of India, South America and France. They require no baking and practically no preparation—simply take the tarts out of the freezer to defrost and then serve.
Kashmiri Lemon Ginger. Made with creamy Shrikand, a hand-crafted yogurt cheese formed from strained Dahi, swirled with tangy lemons and fresh pureed ginger.
Chocolate Coconut Cheesecake with Fair Trade Chocolate. Made with Fair Trade chocolate and coconut shavings to create a cheesecake beyond compare.
Salted Caramel Cheesecake. Rich, creamy cheesecake featuring the delightful dance of sweet caramel with the counterpoint of natural French sea salt.
"We're very excited to introduce these sophisticated delicacies inspired by the world's best ingredients and traditions," says Adnan Durrani, chief executive officer. "Featuring Shrikand, a strained yogurt cheese from India, Fair Trade chocolate from South America and French sea salt, we ventured from exotic tastes across three continents to bring Saffron Road's customers these unique World Cuisine epicurean treats. These elegant mini tarts will bring cheer and adventure into American homes for the holidays."
They can be found in the frozen food aisles for a suggested retail price of $8.99.
